Dane,

Thanks for posting the photos. The lower one is a 1908 Ford Model S Roadster.



The power line hides/breaks up the normal look of the front seat mid section but the radiator shape, the water pump in the lower portion of the radiator, the hand crank held up, Right Hand Drive, shift lever visible, curved metal cowl, splash aprons and running boards etc. clearly mark it as a 1908 Ford Model S Roadster. [Note the front spring is the same on the NRS & SR as the 1909-1915 Model Tís.]

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Thanks

I think the upper one is a Maxwell. Maybe a 1907 like this one.

I think the second car may be an electric. Notice the sweeping, possibly leather, rear fenders. The car also has a "boxy" appearing front and rear, and sidelamps and tiller steering similar to the Woods Electric (on the left side).

Richard,

I believe there is a Maxwell in the photo too, on the left side of the Shorpy photo:



Another Maxwell (with a predecessor to his left):

Thanks everyone. I was pretty sure that the S was a Ford that I could not be certain about, and Maxwell was one of my possibilities for the other car. I agree with you, Richard that the car behind the S could well be electric, the side-lamps certainly give that impression.
